DEXTER - The Dexter Key Club remains busy as school winds down with just three weeks to go. The Garland K-Kids held their last meeting Monday the 19th and did a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. The K-Kids "Jumped for Health" using jump ropes and raised $102.00. The Dexter K-Kids will hold their last meeting on Monday, June 2nd and will do the same fundraiser.
The Key Club also helped the Dexter Sunrise Kiwanis on last Saturday with the Bike Safety Day. About 50 children registered for the event and the Key Club managed the events, refreshments and face painting. The Key Club has been helping with this project now fourteen years.
Upcoming events include, a dress-up day at Dexter High School, where students will dress-up and pay a dollar to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis charity. This will take place on Friday, May 30th.
The club is winding up a Skip-A-Meal fundraiser for Kiwanis International Foundation, and we are planning a trip to the local redemption center to pull can tabs for Shriner Hospitals.
Members are getting ready to start work on the Key Club Garden at Brewster Inn, weeding and planting flowers.
The Key Club is also looking to go to the Grist Mill Museum in Dexter to clean and ready the museum for opening in June.
Dexter Key Club is also scheduled to go to the Seeds of Peace Camp in Otisfield, Maine to help ready the camp for opening. We will be cleaning camp on June 14th and also visiting Camp Sunshine's open house the same day.
The Dexter Sunrise Kiwanis will be holding their annual Pancake Breakfast that morning, so some members will be staying behind to help with that.
On Thursday, June 5th, the Garland Primary School has asked the Key Club to help with their Spring Fair, and Mayo Hospital has contacted the club about helping with their health fair late in June.
So, lots of activities still to come. Keep saving those can tabs for Shriners and your ink cartridges and cell phones. We will be accepting them all summer."This content originally appeared as a copyrighted article in the SVWeekly.com and is used here with permission."
